    A terrific ariicle in The Independent

    "1 Number of Bush administration public statements on National security issued between 20 January 2001 and 10 September 2001 that mentioned al-Qa'ida.

    104 Number of Bush administration public statements on National security and defence in the same period that mentioned Iraq or Saddam Hussein."

    •  Ditto (none)
      Flagging steveb's Independent article (link above) as being a good "send to Rethug friends to piss them off" article.
      0 Number of minutes that President Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, the Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, the assistant Defence Secretary, Paul Wolfowitz, the former chairman of the Defence Policy Board, Richard Perle, and the White House Chief of Staff, Karl Rove ­ the main proponents of the war in Iraq ­served in combat (combined).
